Take the My Stroke Risk Assessment
Every year, more than 795,000 people in the United States have a stroke; it is the third leading cause of death and the number one cause of disability in our country. However, many strokes can be prevented! The first step is knowing your risk factors and how your choices could lead you to increased chance of stroke. The Minnesota Stroke Association has developed an assessment tool to empower you to make healthier choices and raise awareness of what specific areas you can improve to lower your risk.

Join us for the ActFAST Run Team on October 8 and 9 as part of the Twin Cities Medtronic Marathon!
What does it mean to Act FAST? In the stroke community, it means recognizing the signs of stroke (Facial Drooping, Arm Weakness and Slurred Speech) and acting on them in a timely fashion by calling 911. In our daily lives, however, we can Act FAST by raising awareness of stroke's warning signs throughout our communities and across the state. Enter the Act FAST Running Team!
